The intrepid vacationer can explore more than the wilderness with Mount Rainier National Park’s exquisite dining options. The dining rooms of Paradise Inn and National Park Inn offer signature dishes with a variety of American favorites.

We also offer a variety of cafes in the park where you can sit and relax over a hearty meal and refreshing beverage or grab-and-go as you continue your adventurous exploration of Rainier.

Our expert culinary staff utilizes organic ingredients produced by sustainable agriculture when available. In the great Northwest, we have the magnificent mountains, Pacific coast, and America’s farms all around us. Gently blend with the best climate for growing and tending, and you have the magic recipe for great food.
